We’re back with a mid-April Podcast, and on today’s Pod we go through in detail every single DNP that has befallen the NBA!  Hah, of course kidding, on today’s show we go over news and notes from the past week including Giannis playing PG and late-season streaming options if your league is still going on, play another edition of Can We Make Slim Look Stupid, preview the 2015-16 Razzies which will be announced tomorrow morning, take a look at tonight’s games with our last 30-Point Challenge picks of the season, then wrap up at the movies including a look at our Fantasy Movie League.

    hm I’m winning my 9 cat finals 5-4, looks like everything is decided except for FG% (winning .4718 to .4634 with two weeks worth of shots), TO (losing 109 to 101), and points (winning 841 to 787). kind of looks like it’ll come down to FG% although I probably shouldn’t overestimate my points lead

    tonight it looks like my opponent is playing
    Rose
    Curry
    Ariza
    Teletovic
    KAT
    Wade

    and I could play, or sit
    Livingston
    Harden
    Wiggins
    Millsap
    Whiteside (GTD)
    Cauley-Stein

    guys available to pick up include Capela, Ezeli, D West, Koufos… what do?

      @dom: Capela vs Pho! and I like Koufos. I would guess Whiteside sits. So that’s one spot. Can you bench Livingston? Love his game for your needs, but I would play either Kouf or Capela over him

      • dom says:

        @JB Gilpin: thats a PG slot. only other option is Schroder but Livingston fits what I need better. i’ll pick up Capela in case Whiteside doesn’t go, do you think I should play him or Koufos over WCS or Millsap if Whiteside does play tonight?

        for tomorrow do you like Crowder (MIL), T Harris (WAS), or Aaron Gordon (MIA) from an efficiency standpoint? Could play 2 of them or 1 and some combination of Nerlens (NYK) Gobert (LAC) Carl Landry (NYK). thanks a lot

          @dom: Oh OK, forgot those were positional spots. Def sticking with Livingston.

          If everyone plays, gimme Kouf over WCS. I’ll stick with Millsap.

          I’d prob play Harris and Gordon. Tobias playing well, and both with low TO.

          • dom says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: cool thanks a lot. if Whiteside is out tonight who should I drop to make room for Koufos (I’d play him and WCS/Capela)? I’m wary of playing my guards Fri-Sun.

            Clarkson (@NOR Fri, @HOU Sun)
            Gary Harris (SA Fri, UTA Sun)
            George Hill (think he might be more efficient option to start over Clarkson Fri @TOR and Sun BKN)
            A Gordon (would be benched Fri, @Mia Sun)
            Ed Davis (might start him Saturday Min)
            Steven Adams (might start him Saturday @Sac)

            if Whiteside plays should I drop one of those guys or WCS (OKC Saturday)?

              @dom: If Whiteside plays, then yeah prob cutting WCS. I’d prob cut Harris first, tough matchups and FG% risk

              • dom says:
                (link)

                @JB Gilpin: so you like Steve Adams and Ed Davis more for Saturday than WCS? I like Adams less sure about Davis

                  @dom: Sorry I was getting confused thinking all these moves in advance. Yeah I would rather WCS>Davis

    Came to make my Razzie selections, but I guess I’ll make a 30 pt pick too. Wouldn’t be shocked if Booker or Wiggins does it, but I wanna be different. I’ll take Aldridge.

    If Skiles is in danger of losing the Razzie he so deserves, someone let me know and I will put in a hundred votes right now.

      @Ryan: Hah sounds good! And no, no danger at all for Skiles haha 🙂

    Finished 3rd, thanks for all the help throughout the year, you guys are awesome!

    Here are some dynasty questions:

    5 max keeper (1-5 round) Currently planning on keeping Harden, Kemba, Porzingis, Dipo, and between Monroe, Jabari, and Len. Leaning towards Jabari now, unless Monroe gets traded to a team with high usage. What do you think?

    Also, my team has been lacking 3s this year. What do you think about Dipo for Klay? Do you trust SKILLLLESSS next year?

    With the above 5 keepers, how should I build my team in a 9cat h2h 9 win league?

      @Poisonous Stuff: Awesome, nice work! Hmmm, you could use the volume boards, and don’t need scoring as much. I think Jabari in a vacuum too, maybe you keep him and try some trades.

      Hah I will never trust SKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILES! ever again. I’d do that for Klay. Maybe shop jabari to a team needing scoring for a purer big.

    Got 1 last move left. I’m down 4-5. Leading in 3s, pts, ast and stl. Close by in ft, blk and to. I have Batum and Turner in my line up. Who do I drop? If I drop Turner, I’ll need a C.

    Who would you pick up:
    Cody
    Amir
    Derrick Williams
    Harkless
    CJ Miles
    Ajinca
    Nicholson
    JaMychal

    This is for my repeat dreams.

    Thanks as usual, JB!

      @Eazy E: btw, I also have Butler whos Bulls just lost today and might be shut down.

        JB Gilpin says:

        @Eazy E: Lets make some repeat dreams! Guessing M Turner right? Yeah he can go. So you need FT% with low TO, that takes out Harkless. Gimme Ajinca tonight v Lakers! 80+% FT shooter, TO are a little iffy, but he could fall into multi-blocks pretty easy too
